NYC is now providing childcare for all essential personnel including restaurants
The City of New York is now providing childcare for all essential personnel who are critical to the COVID-19 response efforts. This includes restaurant staff and delivery/takeout workers. Those who are serving in these vital roles and have no other means of childcare can enroll in New York City Department of Education's Regional Enrichment Centers (RECs). RECs are open and operate from 7:30am to 6:00pm on Monday-Friday, and will ensure that students in grades K-12 have access to remote learning as well as various art, music, and other activities.
To enroll your child(ren) in one of these centers, please complete the REC Enrollment Form below for each child you are seeking to enroll. You will then receive an email confirming your child's center assignment within 48 hours. Please visit the NYC Department of Education website for more details.
